Um I don't agree. I think a TUF like show would be great.
Tuf is now at 5, and still brings a nice chunk of viewers. Originality? there has been 5 (soon to be 6) seasons it's not original anymore, and people still watch it.
Pride has to do something I'll tell you that. If UFC starts losing too much money off pride they may shut them down. Compete? they are both UFC owned how would that hurt the owners? I'm sure they didn't get pride to shut it down. other wise they would of already took all the signed Pride fighters over to the UFC. They most likely had a signed contract too.
No matter what it maybe they need a show, No doubt about it. I see a TUF like show may work. Without pride having a TV deal they won't be around long.

bad idea...the tuf show would lose all originality and would most likely have poor audience numbers due to pride still not being a household name like ufc is. plus it would only compete with TUF in UFC which would not draw more viewers but just transfer the hardcore pride fans from watching tuf ufc to the new tuf pride which in turn would produce minimal growth for the company.
